Product description

Accelerated ageing or accelerated weathering testing is carried out on products, materials and coatings that will be subjected to periods of time outside. It is used to assess the level of damage and degradation that occurs with exposure to sunlight and moisture. 

We use Xenon arc lamps which simulate the full light spectrum of natural sunlight. With the ability fully programme lamp ON/OFF times and use water sprays at any time, we can create most types of climates. 
The duration of any test is often set by individual product standards. If you need to put your product through specific proving, our highly experienced test engineers will work with you to create durations and cycle patterns to meet your individual requirements. 

Guidance on levels exposure in relation to particular global regions can be given. 

Accelerated ageing is a conditioning process and assessment tests are carried out on pre- and post- aged samples. The assessment testing prove a particular property of your product or material. Some of these tests we can carry out are: 
Tensile and Flexural testing 
Izod and Charpy testing 
Cross cut adhesion or cross hatch testing 
Colour fastness or light fastness 
Testing standards relating to Xenon arc testing: 
ISO 4892-2 Methods of exposure to laboratory light – Xenon Arc 
BS EN 60068-2-5 Simulated solar radiation at ground level and guidance for solar radiation testing
